Right.  I'm mainly using your message as an excuse to put out another 
reminder--to anyone reading my message--of the commitment expected of 
people who run SVN trunk.  I generally put comments like these in any 
message where I answer questions about trunk.

Yeah, and since messages from the tickets are sent via the -commits 
list, by subscribing to it, you'll be able to see a) what bug reports 
have been filed (reducing the chances of duplicates), b) what tickets 
were closed as invalid (and why), c) the recommendations from developers 
who are trying to help users solve problems reported in their tickets, 
and d) the final resolution to the tickets.  There's a lot of good 
information in the -commits list (especially when you also consider the
